long time the Daytona International expressway and Talladega Superspeedway were the only superspeedway tracks in the NASCAR Schedule that featured fiery melee races with chaos entertaining you, but all of this comes at the expense of teams as most of the damage they take is irreparable.
Reconfigured last week Atlanta Motor Speedway joined the Superspeedways and the event was one of the most entertaining and successful in a long time. But with that comes the tough question, should NASCAR focus more on building more chilled tracks with superspeedway characters as a way for future success?
The answer is…it’s complicated, but now a former NASCAR racer Kyle Petty was advised that this might not materialize in the future due to the financial burden this places on team owners.

Kyle Petty said he believes there are some team owners who understand that the increasing enthusiasm for superspeedways like Atlanta’s could tempt NASCAR to meet that demand, which can negatively impact teams’ budgets, which bosses do not want to endure at any cost. Kyle Petty suggests this could force team owners to call NASCAR to limit the number of superspeedway races held.
“I think part of the fear and revulsion might be that, “Hey, that worked in Atlanta, there might be some mile and a half circuits that we might want to try that with. There might come a point where the owners, and we know maybe the drivers’ opinion should be limited, but the owners, they have one foot in the bill and they have this next-gen car this year with this limited Duration‘ Kyle Petty said.
“Do you think at some point, I don’t know, they say, they pay for it, they push back and say SIX of these kinds of races is enough? They might do this because they have the numbers to back it up,added Kyle Petty.
The cost and entertainment of superspeedway racing has increased so much that NASCAR will certainly introduce new such tracks, but there should be a limit where teams and drivers say enough is enough given that there are multiple superspeedway races in the are unsustainable for a long season, both for the team and for the drivers.
